I mean I like the layout and what not, but not so sure with the whole thing.
Then again a hd5970 + GTX 480 would be uber.

And doesn't matter about brand vs brand its not even a deciding factor. Most ppl who chose AMD already chose a camp and don't care about Phyx the bigger news is Lucid boosting graphics 30% in any configuration. (at least at ASUS )
And maybe they chose 870 to keep the cost down cause they dont have the same "deal" With lucid other companies do, or that what they chose cause they know it dosnt matter. So They cut it down to 2 PCIE and optimize it. After u fill those 2 slots thats it.
